In the final game of a Thanksgiving triple header of NFL football, the Seattle Seahawks beat an NFC West opponent 19-3 for the second straight game, this time against the San Francisco 49ers at Levi’s stadium.
Seattle struck first, as after a Richard Sherman interception, the offense went 45 yards in 7 plays, with Russell Wilson finding running back Robert Turbin for a 13 yard touchdown with a minute and a half left in the first quarter. In the second quarter, Steven Haushka kicked a pair of field goals (21, 36) to make it 13-0 at halftime, and added a third field goal after Seattle drove 65 yards in 11 plays in the opening possession of the second half, kicking one from 35 yards with eight minutes left in the third quarter.
San Francisco finally got on the board right before the final minute of the third quarter, as a 12 play, 59 yard drive ended in a 40 yard field goal by Phil Dawson, but a Haushka field goal from 46 yards with ten minutes to go, along with another interception of Kaepernick by Sherman sealed the win. Wilson was 15 of 22 for 236 yards and a touchdown, and Marshawn Lynch ran for 104 yards, while Kaepernick was held to 16 of 29 for 121 yards and two interceptions, and the 49ers offense only had 164 yards of total offense.
